UK regulator Ofcom has released a 19 page briefing document Update on 5G spectrum in the UK which identifies the 700MHz, 3.4GHz to 3.8GHz and 26GHz bands as providing the best opportunity for the UK to benefit from 5G and states that work has already begun clearing these bands for use.

Ofcom are preparing to make sufficient spectrum available for 5G and are also playing a critical role in international discussions on bands for 5G in CEPT and ITU. Additionally, they will be preparing for the next World Radiocommunications Conference in 2019 where spectrum bands for 5G are expected to be identified globally.

The briefing document provides an update on international developments, and the programme of work that has been initiated with regards to making spectrum available for 5G.
